**Most students remain awake to study until after midnight and then repeat the schedule the next day.

Some students I spoke with live on the campus while others bike or ride public transportation to and from school. Still, when they return home, they must study for an additional one to two hours to keep up with their studies.

 

I thought this was an interesting glimpse into the lives of Chinese high school students.
